Semi-integrated otherwise known as zero stack (although it isn't - it's just low stack compared to external!) Halfords sell an FSA one which is a bit heavy but VERY robust - cost about £17.

Or just replace the bearings. If you can find any.

The Superstar zero stack headset is decent too. I think there's 10% of them or something at the moment too.

You can't, the stock headset is 'semi-cartridge', so you have to replace the lot.

you can replace the bearings, just fit twice as many and remove the cage. I usually do that.

Thanks for all the advice guys. Just reserved the fsa one on at halfords with a free can of gt85 so not too bad. Are they easy enough to remove and refit ? Thanks again.

The bearings usually will prise out. Some are simply a standard caged bearing with a seal on it.

But to fit a new headset you need to remove the old cups and press in the new ones.

Take it to a shop (not Halfords) and get it fitted. Unless it's the same as the original headset then you can just fit the new bearings in the old cups.

To reiterate, the Fury uses a semi cartridge, it is one piece from steerer to frame, NOTHING can be changed individually..... Think of it like a cartridge bearing where there is no carrier, it fits directly into the frame and to the crown race and wedge.

Not this one you won't....absolute guarentee, the outer race is steel and also fits direct into the frame, the bearings are roller and have a robust cage and then the inner race is steel as well....I'll get a photo later.
